Eagle-eyed @lucky_lazy on Twitter has spotted that BAFTA is celebrating its 70th birthday by “showcasing a collection of BAFTA-winning breakthrough films from seven outstanding British film-makers” – and one of those is Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice. The film, as I’m sure readers of this blog already know, features Tom Hollander as Mr Collins in this adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel.
The BAFTA screenings are below – there’s also an open-air screening on Thursday 6th July at the Bussey Building in Peckham which has Joe Wright attending for a pre-film Q&A. Quite possibly Joe will be at some of the other screenings too, though it doesn’t say on the BAFTA website.
Links for tickets to the screenings below (except the one on 6 July) can be found here:
Friday 23 June | Pomegranate, Chesterfield Sunday 2 July | Genesis, London Thursday 6 July | Bussey Building, Rooftop Film Club (+Q&A with dir Joe Wright)
- Sunday 23 July | MAC, Birmingham
- Monday 7 to Thursday 10 August | Curzon Community Cinema, Clevedon
- Tuesday 22 August | Exeter Phoenix, Exeter
I can tell you that the Genesis Cinema is utterly fantastic, I don’t know the other ones though. (Post-script: having now been to the Bussey building too for this screening I can tell you it’s fantastic too).
